typical nitro can thin taste at the start. rich roasted taste. A fine, passable stout, but not thick enough for my stout tastes.

Has a nice roastiness, perhaps more roasty than Guiness, but rendered almost completely lifeless by the nitro tap.

Not bad, but at about the same price for Guinness thereís no contest.

Very nice drink. I prefer it to draught guinness, as it is slightly sweeter.

Now then I say that this is a sweet and tto soft and soppy version of the Dark Stout. Stop the slurping of the malty mess that is the very heart of this OKish brew and go swallow a gallon of Guinness. It is not bad if the real brew isnít available BUT if given a choice, men like the real deal. OK for the half pint lipstick and tight knicker elastic brigade but no use for a real ball swelling, gut filling, piss up. Get real GET GUINNESS. Tell them John and Grumbles sent you.

Choosing between this and Guinness is a coin toss. Theyíre not exactly the same, but close enough that Iíd probably just alternate between the two. Nice texture, without being syrupy, same cocoa/coffee notes as Guiness, perhaps a bit milder. Some day Iíll have to try them back to back.

On tap. I expected something thicker, creamier, and more flavourful from the wonderful appearance and head. Nice and dry, but too watery. Iíll have to go against the status quo and vote this over Guiness. Both are too watery, but this isnít as bad.

I enjoy this beer more than guiness, but still not a great great stout.

May have gotten a bad can. Very disappointed. Pales in comparison to Guiness. Lacking taste and body. My friends love this beer.
